varsity Also Put Through Foul
Shooting Session Despite
Previous Good Work.
With the Ohio State game but
a few days in the offing, Coach
George Veenker yesterday put hisl
proteges through a lengthy skull
session in which he demonstratedI
the Buckeye plays and formations.
In a drill previous to the blackboard
talk in another one following it,
the Michigan cage mentor worked
to speed up the Michigan offense
which to date has been rather slow
in breaking through the opponents

Practice Fouls.
In addition to the regular drill
and scrimmage, the Varsity cagers
were given a session in practicing
free throws on the theory that a
close game is won
by the number of
f ,.shots made good
from the foul line. i
:Several of t h e
regulars have
been consistently

partment of the
gane, but an un-

WJUILAMSON for the Wolver-
ines when bat-
tling a Conference opponent.
On the whole the drill was fast
and the team showed plenty of
power, but in the earlier part of
the session the Varsity, when on
the offensive showed a tendency to
drop the ball and were rather loose
in their passing tactics. Williamson
and Petrie remain in the first
string lineup, with Eveland and
Show pushing them at a fast pace
for theirnositions.
Daniels Stars Again.
Daniels, at center, was in his usu-
al good form and scored frequently
even under the close guarding of
Shaw. Weiss' fast floor play was
a feature of the practice, but the
diminutive forward is still having
difficulty in get-
ting into his old
form when it
comes to sinking
the ball through
the meshes.
Hudson and >:::
Root, teamed up
to guard William-
son and Altenhof,
had difficulty in

flashy sophomore guard reversed
the formation and took the ball
through the substitute defense to

The Wolverine coach is hoping
to work up a combination of de-
fense tactics that will succeed in
breaking up the Buckeye forma-

Ohio cage veteran and all-around
athlete. To date the court repre-

have shown only flashes of speed,
their outstanding achievement be-
ing a decisive win over the Badger

after their defeat at the hands of

Fr [ET
Keen E x p e c ts Improvement
Over West Virginia Meet
Against M.S.C.
Proving that the winning team
is never as good as the coach would
have it, Coach Keen again lastI
night spent the entire practice ses-
sion teaching his wrestlers what
was wrong with their bouts when
they handed West Virginia the 29
to 5 drubbing last Saturday. Al-
though the Michigan mentor stated
that his crew showed some promise,I
he expected them to be much im-
proved before their encounter with
the Spartans on Jan. 24.
Aim for Title.
Several of the Wolverines were
ip the ring for their first taste of
competition when they went a-
gainst the Easterners, but they
handled their bouts with some of
the confidence and dispatch of vet-
erans. With the sty rt that it was
the Maize and Blue can be expect-
ed to go quite a ways along the
road to the Conference title.
Sigwart in the 118 pound class
was one of the newcomers and by
taking a fall from his man in about
half of the time limit he proved his
place on the Varsity. With a little
more drill and experiencethe should
be one of the regular point getters
for the Wolves.
Parker also made his debut in
the Varsity wrestling circles when
he entered the ring against the
West Virginian in the 155 pound
class. This match was one of the
hardest fought bouts of the eve-
ning and in winning a five minute
t i m e decision Parker displayed
more skill than is expected in first
night performances, although he
had been on a three day fast in
order to make weight.
Auer is Back.
When the Wolverine grapplers go
to the mat with the Spartans Cap-
tain Auer will again be in the
ranks, and he is expected to take
any element of doubt out of the
(heavyweight match. Auer has been
out with an injury to his shoulder,
but it is improving at a rapid rate1
and he will be able to work out by
the end of the week.
Finishing with the corrections on
the matches last Saturday, Coach
Keen will uncork severat new holds
and stoppers which will fill the
practice sessions until Saturday, at
which time there will be a series of
17 bouts in all of the class weights.

Casey Joins List.
When the next gridiron season
rolls around, a new member of the
youthful group of pigskin mentors
will join Kipke of Michigan, Kizcr
of Purdue, Stuhldreher of Villanova,
Caldwell of Williams, and McKen-I
nedy of Boston who are in the van
of the new era. This initiate who
will take over one of the mostcolor-
ful positions on the football hor-
izon, the leadership of the Harvard
coaching staff, is Edward L. Hasey,
Harvard, '19, who is to succeed
Coach Arnold Horween at the Cam-
bridge institution next fall.
Casey is the famed Eddie Casey
who flashed across the Crimson
gridiron in 1919, a dininutive 155-
pound back, his broken field run-
ning and incredible snaring ofl
passes winning him national recog-
nition. Although he played only two
years of varsity football, he made
a name for himself that still lives.
